* Update: unfortunately, Norah Jones did not perform Saturday night.
Tonight the Spaceland Ballroom is hosting the “Wild Rovers” Tour featuring Cory Chisel, The Candles, Invisibleman, and Adriel Denae. However it’s guesswork over the tour’s “Special Guests,” that’s drawing some buzz.
Speculation has it that none other than Norah Jones may make an appearance tonight in Hamden.
There’s more than a few signs pointing to this- Chisel spent months touring with Jones, and Josh Lattanzi of The Candles also plays bass in her backing band.
Not only that, but the Grammy award winner popped up at several previous Wild Rovers Tour dates (see here for St. Louis, MO, here for Appleton, WI, and here for St. Paul, MN). There’s similar rumors for the tour’s Hudson, NY stop on Sunday (click here).
Of course this is all speculation. A call to the show’s promoters yielded nothing but hedging and non-confirmations of potential guests.
The other problem is that the Spaceland Ballroom show is the first of three Northeast dates on this leg of tour. Jones could very well be in another part of the country by now.
Equally exciting the rumor train is the potential that Rosanne Cash, daughter to the late country legend Johnny Cash, could perform. Chisel played a sold-out show with her Friday night at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. Cash has several dates booked in the area, including one at the Palace Theatre in Stafford Springs on Dec. 13.
There’s only one way to find out about tonight’s guests.
Tickets to tonight’s show at Spaceland Ballroom are $15 at the door. The show is 21+, and doors open at 8 p.m.
